REGISTRATION OF 1800
PREDICTED BY SPENCER
Present Total of 1726 Shows Lead of
210 Over Figures for Last
Registration this term already shows
an increase of 210 over last spring
term, although the final figures will
not be known until after April 17, the
last day of registration. The temporary
figure of 1726 will approach the 1800
mark at the present rate, according to
Carlton E. Spencer, registrar. The usual
decrease from winter to spring terms
was greater among men than women
being 12 and 8 per cent respectively.
“Many of the students stay out of
college to work during the spring
term,” said Mr. Spencer in accounting
for the spring decrease.
Up to the present, the registration
among the men is 21 graduate students
and 878 undergraduates: among women
there are 11 graduates and 816 under
graduates. However, the graduate
school has until Friday, April 14, before
being charged an extra fee for late
■ registration. The total of 1726 shows
an increase of 12 per cent over the 1516
of last spring term.
If the number registered reaches the
expected 1800 mark the decrease from
! the winter sum of 1932 will yet be one
per cent smaller than last year's de
crease from 1655 to 1516.
BULLETIN ISSUED FOR
Conditions and Courses at
‘‘The Next Step” is the name of a
new bulletin issued by the promotion
department of the University, under the
direction of Prof. F. L. Stetson, of the
I education department, to all high school
seniors and prospective college students
in the state. The bulletin is for the
general information of the high school
i student in helping him decide his future
course in college, and presents material
of a valuable nature in defining to him
the exact content of the courses pre
sented by the University.
Written on the general assumption
' that the average high school student
has a very vague idea of the oppor
tunities open to him through the pro
j fessional schools and departments of
j the University, and of the line of em
ployment he wishes to follow when
'through college, the bulletin presents
the desired information in a manner
that is designed to arouse interest and
inquiries from the prospective, student.
The bulletin opens with a. personal
letter to the student which sets forth
the value of preparation in one’s life
work. The exact nature of expenses
i while at the University is set forth
and the sources of employment for
students who wish to earn their way
partially or wholly while in college,
The courses of the 22 departments of
the College of Literature, S.cience and
the Arts are described, and a list of
some of the professional, semi-profes
sional and cultural opportunities result
ing from the courses in this school are
explained in detail.
The professional schools of business,
journalism, law, medicine, architecture,
music, physical education and social
service are outlined with a list of the
vocational opportunities included.
“The Next Step” is one of the Uni
versitv of Oregon leaflet series issued
monthly bv each department of the Uni
versity, but this issue was designed as
a combined bulletin on the vocational
advantages of the University courses.

PROF. F.S, DUNN WRITING
NOVEL OF CAESAR'S TIME
Story Begun 19 Years Age
Occupies New Field
Frederic S. Dunn, head of the Latin
department, has been reading to his
Roman history class an uncompleted
historical novel of which he himself
is author, based on the life of Caesar
during his Gallic wars. The book, on
which Professor Dunn has been working
for 19 years, is now about one-third
The characters are all historical with
the exception of the heroine, Calidia,
whose name Professor Dunn finally de
cided upon after choosing and discard
ing several othens. C^Jidia in the
story is the niece of Milo, a Roman, who
assassinated the emperor Claudius and
whose defense Cicero delivered one of
his greatest orations.
Trebatius, the hero, to whom some
of Cicero’s extant letters were writ
ten, was a real historical character
sent to Caesar in Gaul by Cicero with
a letter of introduction. Trebatius was
in Gaul at the time of the insurrection
there in the year 54 during Caesar’s
second expedition to Britain. Other
real characters in the novel are Caesar,
Claudius, Milo and Claudia.
The name of the book has not been
definitely selected but will be either
“The Man in the Scarlet Cloak,” or
“Ave Caesar Imperator.”
Professor Dunn started his novel
when he was kept up at nights during
the illness of his daughter at the time
of the typhoid epidemic in 1903, and
has worked at intervals on it since that
time. Other chapters were written
when he himself was ill in the hospi
tal and while he was aboard the Meg
antic, sailing for Europe. The chapter
originally written for the opening chap
ter is now over in the middle of the
book. A good many of the pages of the
manuscript are written on the backs of
old blue books.
The novel was started. Professor
Dunn said, because virtually no good
novels based on Caesar’s life during
the Gallic wars have ever been written.
